Hello, I’m Kimberly Mortson – the creative chick behind Small Moments located in southeast Michigan. After working for more than a decade as a newspaper journalist, I shifted gears in 2007 to marry my love of the written word together with my obsession for papers and fonts to start Small Moments.
I always believed it was a privilege to tell someone’s story when I worked as a reporter. Once I left the field of journalism I found another way to do that through my designs … by creating mementos that people use to mark the important celebrations and milestones in their lives. My work includes both professional branding and marketing materials such as logos and business cards to social invitations for birthday parties, weddings, anniversaries, showers, baby announcements, etc.
In 2011 I debuted a line of greeting/note cards charmingly named “Sweet Like Candy” cards. The messages on the cards are a combination of all the quirky (Play Hard, Nap Often, Eat COOKIES), sweet (You Make Me Feel MUSHY) and fun (I Need You + TEQUILA) sayings.
I describe my overall design style as sweet and simple. I find inspiration in everything and I’m really sentimental. I love when I have a customer that hires me to create an invitation for a special occasion and my design not only sets the tone for the event but also conveys the significance of the moment. I believe a great invitation is the perfect excuse for a party!
I would encourage anyone interested in doing what I’m doing to go for it. I’m self taught so with a lot of try, try and try again I’ve figured out how to use the software and have been successful at it! Using tools like Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram have also helped me to expand my business beyond word-of-mouth amongst my family and friends.
